Mediware Information Solutions Inc announces its acquisition of Rock-Pond Solutions, a business intelligence and analytics software provider and longtime Mediware partner.

Rock-Pond Solutions offers business intelligence, analytics, content, tools, and services to many of Mediware’s home infusion, HME, and specialty pharmacy customers. Rock-Pond’s business intelligence and analytics software extends the power of Mediware’s home care solutions, notes a media release from Mediware.

The Rock-Pond acquisition provides Mediware with opportunities for product advancement and optimization, as well as supports more collaborative work on the CareTend product roadmap, per the release. In addition, it positions Mediware to develop even better business intelligence and analytics solutions that will provide customers with enhanced insights to help them streamline processes and make smarter decisions.

“By acquiring Rock-Pond Solutions, we are strengthening our software offerings to truly help our customers deliver better care to patients across the entire spectrum of post-acute settings by using business intelligence and analytics in meaningful ways,” says Bill Miller, CEO of Lenexa, Kansas-based Mediware.

Post-acquisition, Mediware will combine engineering teams to improve coordination and consistency. Additionally, Mediware plans to accelerate investment in analytics and expertise, beyond CareTend, and continue to drive product innovation.

“Our longtime partnership with Mediware shows that we both have a shared understanding of how business intelligence and analytics helps post-acute facilities streamline decision making and enhance patient care delivery,” said Pete Tanguay, President of Rock-Pond Solutions, based in Conway, Arkansas.

“This acquisition will build on our historical success by delivering even better software solutions, business intelligence, and new products.”
